ANAHEIM, Calif. cheap jerseys . -- Although Paul Maurice declines the credit, the Winnipeg Jets still havent lost since he stepped behind their bench. Theyre even good enough to beat a team that had been practically perfect on home ice all season long. Ondrej Pavelec made 40 saves, Evander Kane had a short-handed goal and an assist in his return from injury, and the Jets ended the Anaheim Ducks 10-game home winning streak with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night. Blake Wheeler and captain Andrew Ladd also scored for the last-place Jets, who handed the overall NHL leaders their first regulation loss at home this season after a 20-0-2 start at Honda Center. Bryan Little had two assists as Winnipeg hung on for its fourth consecutive win since Maurice replaced Claude Noel, culminating in this gritty win in the leagues most daunting road arena. "Its a tough building to play in, and it feels good to be the first team to beat them (here) this season," Pavelec said. "Its only two points, but it feels really good, especially in this building. ... The whole team is playing with confidence. The new coach let us know were good players, and we can beat anybody." With a fourth win for Maurice, Winnipeg even relinquished sole possession of last place in the Central Division, pulling even with Nashville at the bottom of the table. Yet when asked what hes done to this underachieving group, the veteran coach is frank: "Nothing." "Before I got here, I thought this was a good hockey team," Maurice added. "Now were feeling good, and that changes everything." Cam Fowler and Nick Bonino scored for the NHL-leading Ducks, who hadnt lost at home since Dec. 3. Anaheim has won 19 of 22 overall, but has lost two of its last three games despite putting 42 shots on net and having 36 more potential shots blocked by the Jets. Anaheim was just the fourth NHL team in 40 years to earn a point in its first 22 home games to start a season. The Ducks were the only NHL team that hadnt lost in regulation at home this season, but they began the week leading up to Saturdays game at Dodger Stadium by overlooking the Jets for two mediocre periods. "Theres a lot of distractions going on this week with this outdoor game," Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf said. "Everybody wants to talk about it, and everyones been talking about it for two weeks, so its hard to focus in on what you need to do and getting the two points on hand. But thats no excuse." Anaheim faces the Los Angeles Kings at home on Thursday and again in Chavez Ravine on the weekend. Jonas Hiller yielded three goals on 11 shots and was pulled late in the second period of his second straight loss after a 14-game winning streak. The Swiss Olympic goalie candidly acknowledged a lack of focus. "I just didnt feel like I was really in the game and I wasnt able to cut out all the distractions, like the outdoor game," Hiller said. "Those things happen, but its too bad in this situation. We wanted to keep that streak going. Some days you feel better and other days you dont. You cant be perfect every night. The problem with a goalie is, you see right away if you dont feel good, and you cant really hide." Frederik Andersen stopped 10 shots in relief during the Ducks return from a road trip that began with a loss in Chicago, snapping their eight-game winning streak. Fowler scored a goal in his second straight game just 3:59 in, ripping a slap shot off Zach Bogosians stick on a power play. But Wheeler evened it moments later, putting a stoppable shot past Hillers glove for his 18th goal, and Ladd scored late in the period by pouncing on a loose puck. Anaheim struggled on two power plays in the second period, and Hiller got yanked when he fanned on a quick shot by Kane, who had been out since Jan. 7 after hurting his hand in a fight. After Andersen relieved Hiller, the Ducks pressed in the third period and finally scored when Bonino followed Jakob Silfverbergs rebound in the slot and scored his 16th goal. "You hate to lose," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "You want this thing to go on forever." NOTES: The erstwhile Atlanta Thrashers hadnt visited Honda Center since Oct. 15, 2010. A Winnipeg Jets team hadnt visited Anaheim since 1996. ... Before the game, Anaheim sent D Sami Vatanen down to the AHL. ... With Kanes return, Winnipeg scratched F James Wright, who had missed just one game all season. cheap jerseys china . Greg Chase had a goal and an assist for the Hitmen (3-1-0), who have won three games in a row, while Brady Brassart scored once. Jaedon Descheneau led the Ice (2-2-1) by scoring twice and Jagger Dirk had the other. cheap nfl jerseys china . -- Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is questionable for Sundays game against the Cleveland Browns after straining his groin in practice this week. . One day after the veteran defensive back was released by the BC Lions, Parker signed a one-year deal with an option with the Montreal Alouettes. (Sports Network) - It has been an emotional week for the Minnesota Twins and theyll try to continue honoring the late Harmon Killebrew with a victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim tonight in the opener of a three-game series at Target Field. Killebrew slugged 573 homers over a 22-season Hall of Fame career, with all but one of those seasons spent with the Twins franchise dating back to its days in Washington. Killebrew passed away on May 17 at the age of 74 after a bout with esophageal cancer. Minnesota began paying tribute to Killebrew during its recent home series against the Mariners and hosted a public memorial at Target Field on Thursday during its off day. The Twins will look for a better offensive showing one day after honoring the legend as they were blanked, 3-0, by the Mariners in Wednesdays rubber match of a three-game series. Minnesota went 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position and was shut out for the fifth time this season. Brian Duensing took the loss after yielding three runs over seven frames for the Twins, who have dropped five of six. I think because the pitchers start walking guys, it takes the defense out of the game a little bit, said Duensing, who walked three batters in the contest. We have to get back to throwing more strikes and I have to keep the ball down a little bit more to be successful. Scott Baker aims to win for the first time in four starts as he toes the rubber for the Twins this evening. The right-hander is 0-1 with a 7.04 earned run average over his last three starts and last pitched on Saturday in Arizona. He did not factor into the decision of a 9-6 loss, yielding three runs on four hits and three walks over five-plus innings with seven strikeouts. He fell to 2-3 with a 4.12 ERA in nine starts this season, while Minnesota is 2-7 in his outings. The 29-year-old, who is 0-1 with an 8.68 ERA in his two home starts this evening, is just 1-5 with a 5.01 ERA in nine career starts against the Angels. Los Angeles will be looking to avoid a ninth loss in 13 games this evening after splitting a four-game series with rival Oakland. cheap nfl jerseys. The Angels failed to earn the series win, dropping yesterdays finale, 4-3. After getting shut out by As starter Brett Anderson for eight innings, the Angels got on the board with Mark Trumbos two-out, three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth. Pinch-hitter Russell Branyan, signed prior to the game after being released by Arizona on Saturday, nearly tied the game, but his deep drive to center was caught in front of the wall for the final out. Joel Pineiro took the loss, allowing four runs on 11 hits over 6 1/3 innings. It was a so-so effort, a lot of balls found the hole, Pineiro said. I had good stuff but we came up a little short. Anderson threw a good game against us. Los Angeles made room for Branyan on its roster by placing Howie Kendrick on the 15-day disabled list because of a hamstring injury. The second baseman hasnt played since May 19 due to the injury and is hitting .322 in 45 games this season. The Angels trail the Rangers by a game for first place in the American League West and hope that 21-year-old Tyler Chatwood can deliver a second straight victory in tonights start. After getting blitzed for seven runs -- five earned -- over 2 1/3 innings of a loss at Oakland on May 17, Chatwood beat the Braves five days later at home for his first victory since April 26. The right-hander gave up just a run on five hits over seven innings of work, striking out a career-high six. Good to bounce back and help the team win, Chatwood told the Angels website. I felt good the whole game. But I got into a good rhythm those last three innings, and settled in more to throw every pitch for a strike. Chatwood, who faces the Twins for the first time, is 3-2 with a 4.06 ERA in nine starts, but has struggled to a 7.43 ERA in three road starts. The Twins won five of seven versus the Angels last season. cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
